Lake Maternity Session | Kelli and Chad | Portland Oregon and Camas Washington Maternity Photography

I met Kelli and Chad pretty early on in their pregnancy. Kelli hired me to be their birth doula and then when she found out I was also a photographer, she decided to add those services on as well! Kelli and I had an instant connection and I’m pretty sure we chatted for a good 2+ hours the first time we met. I knew this was going to be the start of a wonderful friendship and boy, was I right.

Kelli and Chad are two of the most adventurous people I’ve ever met! When they got married, they took a helicopter to the top of a mountain, said their vows, and then skied down the mountain! YES, you read that correctly! She even wore a dress and everything. Boy how amazing would it have been to be the photographer of THAT wedding? Anyway, Kelli and Chad are an awesome and fun outdoorsy couple and I’m completely sure that their little girl will be as well. They paddle board, wake-board, ski, and Kelli’s a dancer. Talk about athletic.

So, when Kelli asked me if I could take some maternity photos of her out on her paddle board, I was simultaneously excited and nervous! I trusted her, but watching my doula client go out on the lake at 35 weeks pregnant definitely made me hold my breath. She did it like a champ, though and it was great!

Check out some of the pictures from their session – aren’t they just the sweetest?
